Kidnappers Foil is both the title of an exhibition by artist Gareth Long and the title of more than 200 films by American filmmaker Melton Barker. From the mid-1930s into the early 1970s Barker ventured around the USA making the same film over and over. Most prints of these films no longer exist, but around fourteen have been preserved and Gareth Long will assemble and screen them for the first time since the films were made at Kunsthalle Wien.
